PS4K is based on the RX480 and anything other than clock speeds would certainly delay them well into next year. (according to digital foundry)

While specs aren't everything, I would imagine most of the testing that's being done is on the software side, and not so much the hardware.

Exciting stuff from both camps. I wish the PC had this much competition.
It's an exec speaking so grain of salt but, Andy House said in an interview he was surprised MS announced it. He also talked about how they want to approach things like Apple now, announce hardware shortly before release, so it's possible it still comes out this year?

Would they care?
Another year of dominating the XBox one then still beating the Scorpio to market with a identical spec.

So, you think Sony should scrap NEO, copy Scorpio's hardware and bring it to the market sooner?

What are you talking about, the slim will have 4k blu-ray support that's a total victory for the Xbox and it will steamroll into next year .

What makes you think that random leaked specs = the only specs? They've probably designed multiple consoles up until this point with different price points to pick from.

Perhaps. I voted that they will change specs (thinking up-clocks), so obviously I think it's possible. On the other hand, everything else about the leak seems to have been true, which means dev kits and documentation have been sent out and those are the specs.

Dev kits don't even have retail specs in them so.. Honestly I think the Neo is more like what they had planned inline with the Slim not the Scorpio, but I do think there's a chance that they'll have a reworked console to compete with the Scorpio if they're smart. I wouldn't be surprised to see both a reworked slim neo model at the current price point and a full fledged scorpio competitor.

Personally I don't think either one of them should be bringing out a new console yet.

But Sony are in the dominant position. They don't need an upgrade as urgently as Microsoft do. And since Microsoft have shown their hand already why wouldn't Sony just take some more time and match them for spec? With how well the PS4 is selling why would they need to rush?
